As soon as our ghoulish guests came inside we started our lunch time recipe. What do you get when you pair hot dogs and crescent rolls? A yummy "Mummy Dog" for a delicious hands on snack. We gave each child their own crescent dough triangle and a hot dog and let them "dress" their own Mummy Dog to their liking. As soon as their Mummies were wrapped we popped them in the oven and let the kiddos outside where we had set up the rest of the Halloween Spooktacular day for them to enjoy!
When we were planning this play date, right away we knew it had to be at Bri's house. Her back yard alone is a canvas of possibilities. We had so much fun creating this table and are so excited to share our Amy Atlas inspired table. Here is what we came up with.....take a look!!!!
We of course used an amazing group of talented women to help pull this festive Play Date together. We found complimentary printables from Tweedle Dee Designs. The yummy Spooky Circles, Pumpkin Pops and Pumpkin cupcakes were provided by the wonderful Kolby Kakes. And the Savvy find that we think finished the table was the $3 bat garland that draped the front of the table from a local store here in CA called Tai Pan, every Savvy shoppers dream!!!!
This Spooktacular Play Date could not have happened without a trip to our local Dollar Tree where we found glittery spiders, googly eyes and plastic pumpkins (See craft). A recipe, we still have yet to perfect, is our version of a healthy candy corn treat made out of fruit. (Post to follow) Our Glamorous giveaway this week, a hand painted chandelier canvas with rhinestone detail, comes from Canvas by Kerry which we used to decorate our drink table. Bake it Pretty gave us inspiration to use cupcake liners as popcorn holders for everyone to snack on while the Mummy Dogs were baking.
We ended the Day with Kolby Kakes delicious Pumpkin Pops and a story. The kids intently listened to The Spooky Smells of Halloween A Scratch and Sniff Book by Mary Man-Kong. The kiddos loved the cute story and really enjoyed the Smells of the Spooky Season an Adorable Seasonal Read....
So the day was done. Their tummies were full and the craft was made. Ella B captured it all and even got the kiddos together for a group shot all dressed up in Sweet Things fashions and other homemade costumes. Aren't they too Cute??
